    History.

    Light military vehicle designed by Ferdinand Porsche and built by Volkswagen (based heavily on the VW Beetle). The first test vehicles had no doors and were fitted with bucket (german kübel) seats, thus acquiring the name Kübelsitzwagen that was later shortened to Kübelwagen. Tested in the September 1939 invasion of Poland, full-scale production began in 1940 and continued until the end of the war with 50,435 produced. The Kübelwagen was as ubiquitous in the german wehrmacht and SS as was the Jeep (cat no.24092) in the allied armies. It was very lightweight and coped well with rough terrain having a smooth underbody and high ground clearance. The body could easily be modified to special purposes.
